What I like:
Not as bulky as I thought - Although the pictures of it make it look very large, it feels like a regular watch. Not too bulky or heavy at all and very comfy. I was able to compare it to a friends Samsung Galaxy Gear and the Samsung was very bulky compared to this one.
Functionality - Checking messages and updates right on the watch is very easy and intuitive.
Battery lasts longer than expected. It looks like I can go at least 2 full days, maybe 3 before charging. I was expecting to have to charge every night.
Apps - There are a whole bunch of apps already out for this watch and more coming all the time.
Doesn't have mic, camera or speaker. Some may consider this a fault, but I actually never planned to use these features that other smart watches have (who really wants to make calls by talking into the watch?). I'm glad Sony chose to pass on them to make the watch slimmer.
What I didn't like so much:
Screen resolution - The resolution seems pretty low. Considering you are reading very small text regularly, I wish it had a sharper screen (the Samsung has better screen resolution).
Got stuck on setup - After connecting to the phone and installing the required software, the watch stuck on a screen wanting me to sync with the phone again though it already was. I ended up having to reset the watch a couple times during setup. However, once it began working, it kept working. Haven't had any problems since.Read more ›
I wanted a smartwatch I could use to get notifications while my phone was in my bag. While most smartwatches accomplish this task, the sony does so while being dust and waterproof, able to be read in bright sun, and having the battery last more than two days in normal use.
Let's talk about the set up:
I have a galaxy 4 and had to download the Smart Connect app from google play. The watch paired quickly using the NFC chip. It prompts you to download the software, and you use the Smart Connect software to download/buy more apps.
Most of the useful apps are free. I bought a few more such as a calculator app, a calendar app, and a notification app.
Using the watch :
The watch is very light and fits well for its size. You can choose any 24mm conventional watch band to change the look of the watch. The display is bright and has a good resolution for the screen size. I really don't see a problem with the resolution during normal use. When the watch is in sleep mode, the numbers are easy to read in the sun but you may have to push the power button in dim light because the screen uses reflected, ambient light for the display in sleep mode.
The screen is responsive, albeit the apps sometimes take a bit to load. I have not found a way to arrange the icons to my liking, but I hope this is addressed soon.
I ride a motorcycle and attend many meetings. Both of these activities lend themselves well to the use of a smartwatch I can leave my phone in my pocket or bag and still get updates from gmail,phone calls,texts,and weather without anyone noticing, or taking my hands off the handlebars.
Charging is easy via micro USB port.Read more ›
